Flowbuilt Timeline

Here is a snapshot of various directional Timeline Shifts in design to learn and discover many new applications of Flowbuilt "Craftability". Marketing each new element was found to be challenging to the norms of how things are done. ICF's or Insulated Concrete Forms are detailed wholly on another page. Zero to One is detailed in the content area.

Flow Fence

Curved Wall  "Building Better to Last" ~ 2009

In 2009 the Flow~Joint was invented to quickly create a fence rail to fashion any desired curve and any length desired. The arcs of dimensional lumber were router cut via cnc, then open-air riveted together for strong connections without need for glue. Artisan Hardwood Floors bears this 10'-6" tall Flowfence.

Building it better to last. New smart elements for fences.

Flow Rail Deck

For the Oasis  "Fluid Design" 2010

Besides the fence rail, the smooth hand rail in Ipe was designed to lock and pin together from underneath, thus not creating a hole to plug. For the base beam profile, lapping layers of rail were created to stack and rivet a curving beam.

With the inclusion of another long lasting wood named Accoya, a light colored hardwood, the Darius framework was the first Arbor structure designed for Flowbuilt.
